to know jill kelley in tampa, say people close to kelley, and she turned to him when she and general john allen first received anonymous e-mails last spring that they found alarming. thursday, humphries helped explain that shirtless picture he had sent kelley telling the "seattle times" it was a joke. posing with target dummies after s.w.a.t. practice. it was humphries who apparently worried about a cover-up told republican congressman dave reichert, an old friend about the petraeus investigation. reichert alerted majority leader eric cantor, almost two weeks before the president was officially notified. >> the information that was sent to me sounded as if there was a potential for a national security vulnerability. >> reporter: attorney general eric holder was asked thursday why the president wasn't informed sooner. >> we follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. >> reporter: meanwhile, defense secretary leon panetta has ordered an ethics review for training of military officers, although he says he has no evide
connell and john boehner. can you help explain that? >> mitch mcconnell who runs the senate republican caucus, he's definitely playing the role of the bad cop in that he does not want to compromise at all on tax cuts, has taken a much more hard-line approach, has the bulk of his time talking to "the wall street journal" editorial page, basically speaking to the base. where you have speaker boehner talking in much more conciliatory tones and talking about getting a deal. i think that's going to be the dynamic. mitch mcconnell is up for re-election in 2014. in a very conservative state where it's not inconceivable the tea party would run somebody against him if he does not take a hard-line approach. people need to remember that as these negotiations unfold. for boehner, he wants a deal. i do want to comment a second on the interview you had with paul ryan. ryan might not think that there is a mandate, but the president does, congressional democrats do, and the public does, if you look at polling. and there's zero chance that the president is going to compromise on this, which is why i think there's
they already agreed to that. i think you heard john boehner say that already. we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think the vast majority of americans agree with that. the question is how do you do that and how do you allow taxes to rise at the same time you fix the real problem? and the real problem is uncontrolled entitlement spending and a government that has grown massively. not just under this administration, under republican administration. >> let me turn to senator schumer on this point. >> so you have to approach both sides of it. >> let me turn to senator schumer. i'm going to ask you the same question. if the mandate is compromised, what do democrats have to be prepared to accept as a painful outcome in order to achieve compromise? >> well, i agree with you, the mandate is compromise. that's why we have a divided house and senate. and i think if the house stands for anything it's cut government spending, as tom coburn said, and i think we're going to have to do more of it. we heard the mandate in 2010, where i
to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. marine general john allen, david petraeus' successor in afghanistan and the next nominated head of military for nato nomination put on hold. >>> this scandal involves two very different women, tampa socialite jill kelley and petraeus biographer paula broadwell with whom petraeus had a relationship. >> thank you for all that you have done for me and for our precious daughters. >> reporter: marine general john allen is married with a sterling record, but on a flight to australia monday aides to defense secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the case involving allen's predecessor in afghanistan, david petraeus. fbi investigators you be covered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between general allen and jill kelley whom he and his wife had gotten to know in tampa. they were reviewing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents, including e-mails over two years. the fbi said some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies any misconduct, and the fbi found no wrongdoing. still, jay johnson,
including john mccain and lindsey graham are now calling for a, quote, watergate-style investigation into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had rec
was drawn and the president was angry about what john mccain and lindsey graham said. what is the predicate for that? she's not even been nominated. it's not clear the decision has been made to nominate her for secretary of state. >> susan rice is an outstanding person and an effective ambassador to the u.n. i i think it's unfair to hold her accountable when she -- solely accountable when she was articulating views of the entire administration. i know how the process works and you do, too, before someone goes on the sunday morning shows people get together and decide what is our best knowledge of what happened on issue x, y or, z and she was simply articulate what the administration believed to be the truth at that time five days after the attack in benghazi. it's unfair to hold her responsible for that. she's an outstanding public servant and deserves to be treated in a much more -- in a much more honorable way. >> as people are being invited -- using the term loosely -- up to the hill for hearings they feel like star chambers. the house foreign affairs committee said secretary clinton wou
to become the allied supreme commander, john allen, perhaps fatally flawed because of the embarrassment over this. we don't know if that will proceed. how do you assess what happened with david petraeus? >> well, it's different in scale in the sense, one sense it's larger because it involves the -- the revered almost figure, but also smaller in the sense that some of these big players brought in are so questionable and the fbi agent with the shirtless photo -- >> because now explained as a joke. i've watched it myself. >> the twin sister with the custody dispute. i mean really, stephen colbert last night said the story jumped the shark and brought susan lieu ki on to keep it going. it's a story of hubris combined with flawed people with a modern story of technology ensnarg all of us. >> we have to run. you went to harvard, you know the drill. a story in "the washington post" that paula broadwell just from the get-go, enters the masters program -- enters the ph.d. program, leaves with a masters. questions about resume enhan enhanceme enhancement, her academic work not being up to par. >> it's
hear from lindsey graham and john mccain. it's a clear division between the two sides it's divided the three amigos. even senator lieberman who normally sides with senator graham and mccain doesn't have the same view on this stuff. we don't see foreign policy scandals huge issues sustain unless members of the president's own party raises question. mike rogers has questions, lindsey graham. i believe the administration if it has as strong a case as it does, secretary clinton should brief them in private, public would be better, she would make more progress in private, to let them know what the facts are. >> chris cizilla, what about hillary clinton trying to put this to rest for the administration when, in fact, she could have testified in the first place or not testified, could have come on the sunday talk shows but it was not something she does and it was a hot potato and the white house seemed eager to put susan rice in that seat. >> i agree totally. i think mark is right, that the right thing probably to do is more information is better than less information on this topic. i wat
